I think we ought to live happily ever after!

Hello everyone,

Today is the 1st of June; can you believe it ! Time goes so fast. Anyway I have another postcard to share. I made this as my DT post for Roc. I love postcards and I love Roc's stamps. Especially this screaming bunny !

I started with a piece of white card stock to which I glued some of Tim Holtz' tissue paper. I then painted it with a very thin coat of gesso to soften the black print of the tissue paper. Next I used PaperArtsy fresco paint in the colour 'Limelight' and when this dried I added some more gesso. I also sanded it in between layers. This gives a nice shabby look. I used some patterned paper for the bottom. I just cut the top along the flowers. Next I stamped the dog, coloured him and positioned him on the card and glued the patterned paper over the top. I then took it to my sewing machine and stitched around the card twice. I think this gives a nice effect. I also accentuated the top of the flowers with a green Big Brush Marker which I also used to stamp the swirls. You just scribble on the stamp and stamp it ! Next I stamped the bunny and coloured him with Copic Markers, same as the dog. I cut him out and adhered him to the card. The last thing was the sentiment which I typed on my old typewriter and cut out. I doodled around the edges and adhered them to the card. 
That was it.

I used the following stamps:

You can find Roc's stamps at Stampotique HERE.

Thank you for stopping by !
